For the Love of It!

Buried deep
in the cosmos of my existence
lie words
hidden, mysterious, powerful-
cozy in the joyous comfort
of a boisterous book.
Nothing matters then.
The world may swirl around
for all I know -
it is the warm embrace of a book
that twirls me around
on tip toe at times,
a salsa at other times,
but always for me-
just me and the words
that sigh, sing and shout
all at once.
Oh! for the love of it.....

"Books can take you on a journey, without taking a single step."

My class teacher said that, a long time ago. Reading through this poem brought it back to mind.

Agree with you. Books are the greatest friends on loneliest days and nights.....

I agree. I always have a book or two on the go. However, when I travel, I like my eBook reader.

Thanks Geeta. Just can't imagine a life without books.

Thanks Kay. Same here. Always have a book with me. Haven't tried the eBook though...
